Norwegian Escape will switch to western Caribbean route only

Norwegian Escape will sail western Caribbean cruises until November Norwegian Escape will sail western Caribbean cruises until November

Due to the devastation in the Caribbean caused by Hurricane Irma, Norwegian Escape will be sailing only its western itinerary, not the eastern one, until November. The ship usually alternates weekly eastern and western cruises.

Norwegian Cruise Line announced the change on Saturday and said passengers would be notified.

Norwegian Escape is currently navigating a safe course around the path of the storm. As earlier reported, the ship is carrying passengers from the abbreviated prior cruise plus others from Norwegian Sky, who were not able to get flights out of South Florida ahead of Irma.

Norwegian Escape was in Cozumel Saturday, where it's scheduled to stay until 7 a.m. Sunday. Passengers who have secured flights may disembark the ship in Mexico if they wish.
